Guest Etiquette Do's and Don'ts

Do's

1. If possible, do Purchase a gift off of the registy and send to the couple so they dont have to worry about getting it home that evening.

2. Compliment B/G on the way they look /the event itself.

3. Call Bride if unexpected emergency arises and you cant attend.

4. Send a gift even if you cant attend the festivities.

5. Send the rsvp back before the due date and not late as the bride has to make seating arrangement, pay for final counts, make placecards and/or seating board.

6. Do sit in the seat that has been assigned to you as it will cause seating issues if you dont.

Dont's

1. Don't dress casual unless the invite instructs you to do so.

2. Don't bring a guest or children if the envelope does not indicate that they can be accomodated.

3. Don't take the centerpieces home as usually the stands/vases are rented, ask before taking.

4. Don't take pics during the ceremony as usually flash is not allowed and it interferes with the professional photographer the couple has hired.

5. Don't bother the bride with seating issues at the reception seek help of the wait-staff or Day-of coordinator.

6. Dont overindulge in the open bar or cause embarrassment to yourself.

Tips

1. Arrive early to the wedding as to not interfere with the processional (starting of the wedding).

2. Find the cardbox and place your card in there ...do not hand to the bride as it may get lost or dropped.

3. Keep cell phone on vibrate

Ice Sculptures make a statement!




Add some elegance to your buffet table with a ice sculpture. They really add a dramatic focal point to your event. You can do a monogram like Ryan and Patrick did for their wedding or you can choose anything from doves to a sporting theme! The possibilities are endless. Let me know if you need a referral if you are in the Metro Detroit Area. Prices ranges usually $200 and up depending on the complexity of the design.

You're The Bride: Valentine's Day

Hope you had a nice Valentine's Weekend and did something special with your sweetie! Ours was pretty laid back but enjoyable. We just stayed in and had pizza and I surprised my husband Chuck with a Carrot Cake! His favorite (ok I love it too!) Just having him home is a special thing for us since he works in Chicago.

Informal Notes Vs. Thank You Notes


I get asked this question a lot so thought I would tell you the difference...an informal note will have your names printed on the front like Mr. and Mrs. Bob Smith or you can order some just for the bride's personal notes to send out to your guests to thank them for the bridal shower gifts. A thank you just says Thank You ...that's it..easy huh? There are so many styles to choose from or you can get one that matches your invitation ensemble the keep with the flow of everything. There are also photo thank you cards so you can show off your wedding pics! 20% off at checkout!

Rattlesnake Club-Detroit



Yesterday I met up with the Catering Manager, Amy at the Rattlesnake Club in Detroit for a lovely tour and to talk about weddings! What a great venue. I had heard of this place and was delighted when Amy invited me. It is a great place for small or large weddings or any event. They have a beautiful atrium too! If you want to get married by the water across the street they have an area for outdoor weddings with a beautiful backdrop of The Detroit River. You really have to check this place out. Since they are also a restaurant you can stop in for lunch or dinner and try their amazing food! http://www.rattlesnakeclub.com/
Upon my departure Amy handed me a cute chinese take out box with ravioli white chocolates with milk chocolate in the center..they are to die for! yum!
